Beginner piano classes
For absolute beginners, Piano 101 introduces students to easy, logical and step-by-step ways to gain familiarity with the piano, by providing the foundations for both the physical aspects of playing and following a written score.
Intermediate and advanced piano classes
For students with some experience who can already read and play from a score, Piano 201 focuses on improving technique, developing literacy, musical and performance skills, and building a solo and duet repertoire.
MUSIC READING & THEORY
Beginner and intermediate theory classes
For beginner to intermediate students, Music Reading & Theory is run at two levels. Entry level covers basic note reading, and the foundations of rhythm, melody and harmony; the next level builds on foundational theory and delves deeper into the elements of music.
COMPOSITION & ARRANGING
Beginner and advancing composition classes
For students with prior theory knowledge, Composition & Arranging explores the language of music through applied score analysis, investigation of form and compositional technique, and dives into writing and arranging music.
Music appreciation and discovery classes
For anyone interested in indigenous, folk and non-Western classical musical styles, World Music looks at ancient and traditional music from Asia, South America, Latin America, the Caribbean, Pacific Islands, Africa and other regions around the world.
